District News

Keeping our community informed about the issues that affect their families and sharing important announcements is just one more way we serve our community.

Health & Safety Concern

As you are aware, the health and safety of our students is our number one priority. On Thursday, April 11, health officials announced that there are now 180 confirmed cases of measles in Rockland County. This is in an increase of twelve cases in just two days (168 cases reported on April 9), and almost thirty cases in less than three weeks (153 cases reported on March 27). 

Your superintendent has written a vaccination letter to respectfully request those parents who have chosen not to vaccinate their children for other than medical reasons, to please reconsider that decision. For more information, please view the entire vaccination letter.

District administration has advised that state law authorizes providing, at public expense, the necessary equipment, materials, and services needed to immunize students from certain diseases, including measles. Based on this law, the Closter Board of Education intends to schedule a time during which the measles, mumps, and rubella, (MMR) vaccine will be available to any and all unvaccinated students. We will provide more information regarding this event under separate cover by the administration.
